Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H Testing:

DiRT 3 is the third iteration of this series. Published and developed by Codemasters, this game uses the EGO 2.0 game engine and was released in the US on PC in May of 2011.

Settings

  • 8x MSAA
  • Ultra Settings

 

 

Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the followup to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deepsilver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.

 

 

Settings:

  • DirectX 11
  • 4XMSAA
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Off
  • DOF=Off

 

 

 

Results for 3DMark don't vary too much except at the ends. The Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H scores well here for both tests at stock, and despite being slightly lower on the overclock manages to do well in the overclocked tests too. DiRT 3 results vary only a couple of FPS, but the Gigabyte motherboard is closer to the lead than the end. Metro: Last Light has the least variance of the boards here. Obviously from a gamer standpoint the motherboard doesn't really matter for FPS when everything else is the same.
